      I have however also seen other brides who just showed they put tables together.

          For those of you that did or are currently using a TA did you do "group" rates or individual booking?

          We're leaning towards individual booking, it seems the group rates might have some hidden costs to us, but not sure. Just trying to figure all this out!

            We went with individual booking through our TA. The reason being for group rates everyone has to put a deposit down. I was not sure how responsible our group would be with that lol and we were not comfortable with fronting the money for everyone.

            I have to say individual booking worked out great. We let everyone know that rates change all the time but they just keep going up and that our TA would match any other on line sites if they pay in full. This got everyone booking very quickly and handling their own plans , less stress for me lol

              Same here! I didn't want to be responsible for any missed deposits.

                Lisa, here is an update on my issue.

                http://bestdestinati....d-texas-60322/

                I would suggest you to get married before going to Mexico to avoid any headaches. Apparently a bride from Dallas is experiencing the same issue as me. It seems that every county in Texas is different when it comes to foreign marriages. IT SUCKS BALLS!!!

                    Ok, I retract my statement...lisa, get married in TX if you want to avoid any potential headaches but your marriage will be legal if you get married in Mexico. Do get the marriage certificate translated before you leave the Royal!! We didn't do that. Do your research and see if the SS, DMW and your company will accept translated marriage certificate if you want to change your last name.

                    We are just going to get our marriage certificate translated then leave it alone. We are married. Nobody can tell us that we are not.

                      Our TA actually got a group rate from Royal a specific number of days that we selected. Each person paid the TA a deposit on their own. It ended up being that most people wanted to stay longer LOL so we ended up cancelling the contract but the Royal still honored the rates for those who did book the dates we contracted for the group. They did give it to us slightly cheaper than if each person booked individually. If anyone found a package cheaper on line she also honored it and took like $10 off if they paid in full.

                      In my experience its much better to work with a TA because they can keep you informed with all your guests booking status' but also tell your guests to do their own research so that they get the best deal possible.
